Day 1

Our bus will pick us up from the hotel in the early morning, and we will start our journey to the beautiful Snaefellsnes peninsula in West Iceland where we will spend two nights. Snaefellsnes is a home to countless wonders such as majestic Kirkjufell , black church Budir surrounded by the Budarhraun lava field, fishing village Arnarstapi , beautiful coast line, amazing mountain range and much more. In the nights we will try to hunt some Northern Lights over Kirkjufell mountain. Overnight in Grundarfjordur

Day 2

After shooting sunrise at Kirkjufell we will head towards the northwest part of Iceland and witness the peculiarly shaped and highly scenic Hvitserkur. This majestic monolith rises from the sea, almost resembling a prehistoric creature. Afterwards you‘ll head further north and eastward, we will spend the night in Akureyri.

Day 3

After an early breakfast we will drive to photograph sunrise at Godafoss which is likely to be clad in ice around this time of year, making for a truly impressive sight. This is one of Iceland‘s most famous and beautiful falls, and according to the Icelandic sagas it was there that law speaker Thorgeir ljosvetningagodi, who settled the religious strife in Iceland at the time, threw the old idols of the Nordic gods, symbolizing the end of paganism as an officially accepted religious custom. It is said that the fall takes it‘s name. “The fall of the gods“, from this act, but one can just as well agree with the name simply by witnessing the fall‘s sheer beauty.

Afterwards you‘ll head towards the famous lake Myvatn which is set with many small islands and pseudo craters. Close by is the dramatic, indeed chaotic lava field Dimmuborgir, from which a Norwegian symphonic metal band takes its name. Another testimony to how inspiring the scenery is, is the fact that the producers of the TV series Game of Thrones shot many of the scenes beyond the wall at the Myvatn area. Overnight at Myvatn.

Day 4

You will get to explore the colorful geothermal area by Namaskard mountain, an area that is alternatively known as Hverarond or Hverir. There you can photograph the many solfataras and boiling mud pots, which are themselves surrounded by sulfur crystals. As the area gives off a lot of hot steam, caution is advised. Afterwards if you wish you will get to climb Hverfell, one of the world‘s largest explosion craters, and have a great view of the wild snow-clad landscape. Altogether, this is a perfect day to explore and photograph stunning evidence of earth‘s inner powers.

Day 5

You have further opportunities for photographing Godafoss at sunrise before returning to Reykjavik. On the way back we will have few more photo opportunities.
